There Was A Birthday

(Her hair isn't actually that red. Her eyes are that blue.)

She turned one.

We all survived this difficult, yet absolutely delightful, first year.

We had a ton of help. Thank you!

(It was his birthday, too!)

Everything is changed, of course.

I am learning so many different kinds of patience,
while living my life at the pace of a 1-yr-old.

So many things can wait - I'm not gonna miss a moment
of this amazing little spirit who has brought so much to our lives.

Hope to see you again sooner than later.
